GOLF : We offer several services for golfers to help improve their swing, range of motion and performance. These are designed to help prepare for the golf season, or to improve your performance any time, as well as to safely prepare to return to the game after an injury.
Our Golf Performance Package is designed to evaluate and improve stroke, posture and overall performance with our specialist. One or multiple sessions are available, with a six-session program that includes use of our golf hitting cage and strength training equipment.Our state-of-the-art golf hitting cage allows you to work on your stroke in an indoor environment all year long.
ORTHOTICS FITTING : We offer complete foot orthotic services, including biomechanical analysis, casting and video analysis. Working in conjunction with your physician, we are able to evaluate and customize an orthotic to correct or facilitate proper alignment or function of a joint, bone, limb or body part. Most commonly this involves creating a customized device that is inserted in the shoe that supports the arch or lifts the toes to correct cumulative biomechanical damage. Customized orthotic fittings are essential to ensure that the problem is corrected properly and safely, since an improperly fitted orthotic can cause further damage and pain.
An orthotics fitting generally involves observing the current biomechanical issue, studying the foot and then creating a molded cast of the foot to create a custom orthotic. Approximately one week later patients return to try on their new orthotic, and test its impact. Patients can make follow-up appointments to discuss adjustments, discomfort or other issues.
Our comprehensive orthotic fitting services include:
- Completely customized orthotics for optimal fit and results
- Semi-custom orthotics
- Well-priced off the shelf products
- Complete refurbishing service annually
STRETCHING : Preparing for the golf (or other sports) season is crucial to getting through the season injury free. Our Stretching packages help to increase your range of motion using game-specific stretches, which improve your game and reduce your risk of injury. You can also opt for a stretching treatment for general muscle tightness and musculoskeletal health.
MASSAGE : While some patients do require massage as part of their rehabilitation, we offer a range of massages for patients who enjoy the relaxation benefits of massage. You can opt to target a particular area of tension, or enjoy an overall body treatment. Massage is proven to reduce stress, increase blood flow, flush out toxins, and promote a better night's sleep and a sense of well-being. We offer the following non-prescription massages:
- Hot Stone
- Classic Western
- Deep Tissue
- Basic Shiatsu
NON-PRESCRIPTION PHYSICAL THERAPY : For patients who do not have a doctor’s referral for physical therapy, or who do not or no longer have insurance coverage for therapy, our team of experts can still work with you to recover from a long-term injury, improve range of motion, pain-management or any other type treatment.
AFTER CARE : When Your Insurance Company Says No, We Can Sill Say Yes In A Reasonable Cost Effective Way Once your prescribed course of treatment is completed, your relationship with Ridgefield Physical Therapy does not have to come to an end. We offer a modified, fee-based, follow-up program to enable you to continue your therapy once your insurance coverage is terminated. Your Aftercare program allows you to continue using our state of the art facility with oversight by our professional team – which can cost the same (or even up to 20% less) than a gym membership with a personal trainer. Since visits are by appointment only, the gym is never crowded, and you work with the same therapist and aids that helped you during your previous course of treatment.
WELLNESS COUNSELING : Offered in conjunction with our aftercare services, Wellness Counseling allows patients an opportunity to meet with our therapists for a half-hour session one-on-one to evaluate the aftercare program, answer questions and set new goals. It enables clients who no longer have insurance to have access to the same professional expertise advice and evaluation services they had when covered by insurance, with someone familiar with their entire course of treatment.
RUNNING EVALUATION : The Running Evaluation provides an in-depth examination to identify biomechanical faults, training errors, running gait abnormalities, weaknesses and flexibilty imbalances in the novice to elite runner. The one hour evaluation is customized to your goals and issues. It may include:
- Review of Training Goals and Plan
- Flexibility Screen
- Function Strength Measurements
- Biomechanical Foot Examination
- Digital Video Analysis with CD copy
- Customized Strength and Flexibility Program
